With America at risk of default what with the debt-ceiling crisis, President Obama allegedly suddenly finds comfort and wisdom in what the people want.
In fact, Obama gushed with pride recently while claiming that 80 percent of the American people agree with his “balanced” approach to the crisis.
However, as indicated at the reference, most voters do NOT agree with raising the debt limit and believe that Obama was using missed Social Security checks as a scare tactic:
Most American voters oppose raising the national debt ceiling and think talk of missed Social Security checks is just a scare tactic. Voters are optimistic that a debt deal will be made soon, and if it isn’t they will blame both Republicans and Democrats.
These are just some of the findings from a Fox poll released Wednesday.
Voters were asked to imagine being a lawmaker in Congress who had to cast an up-or-down vote on raising the debt ceiling. The poll found 35 percent would vote in favor of increasing the limit, while 60 percent would vote against it.
Most Tea Partiers (81 percent), Republicans (76 percent) and independents (63 percent) would vote against raising the limit. Views among Democrats are more evenly divided: 50 percent would raise it and 44 percent wouldn’t.”
Get that, Barack? Sixty percent, including 44 percent of Democrats, disagree with you on raising the limit!
